Great brow shaping – I gave Raya a whirl for brow shaping because the location was close and I was tired of driving to beverly Hills to go to Anastasia. I have to say, my brows never looked as good as when Raya shaped them for me! AND, it cost less! I now live a good distance away from West hollywood, but I still drive back to get my brows done -- well worth it!
Raisa is the BEST! – Raisa has been my aesthetician for over 2 years and I can't imagine going to anyone else. She carefully waxes my brows to best highlight my face and features and has a perfect eye for what brow shapes do & do not look good. Her bikini waxing is relatively pain free (in comparison to some others!) and is thorough and efficient. Raisa also gives great facials and suggests great remedies to cure any skin imperfection. I highly recommend her!
Tyra Banks has THE best brows and so do I - Thanks to Raya Ruder! – I have to admit, I never "did" my brows, let alone my bikini line until I found out who did my gorgeous friend Elizabeth.
Once she revealed her secret source: Raya Ruder, I was on my way to a new life of perfect 10 brows and a braillian bikini line that would make me proud on any beach from L.A. to Rio De Janero!
Now I'm happy to share her with the world - I am SO happy to turn on another - I am telling you - I am comparing myself to the ugly duckling that turned into a swan!
Anf I am plesed to say that once you try her yourself , you'll know what I'm talking about...
Hurry and book her before the awards show - she may be doing her magic to the countless celebrities that walk the red carpets around town...And you can be at peace - she treats all her clients with the same personal service whether or not you are hollywood rock or royalty!
I love her and know you will too!
Best Eye Brow Shaping – Raisa pays attention to brow shape and how important shape is with opening up eyes. She determines the best shape for your eyebrows and doesn't alter their natural appearance so you dont get stuck with pencil thin or overly bushy eyebrows. After going to Raisa, I would not go to anyone else!
Best Eyebrow & Skincare – I have known Raisa for more than 12 years. Part of that time I lived in New York. I have followed her to whatever location she has chosen, and I would wait until I came in from NY to have her do all my waxing, lash, dying, eyebrows etc. Although NY is a beauty center no one there came close to Raisa eyebrows or her skin treatments. She is truly the BEST!!!!

Hair Removal and Facials – Raisa Laser & Skin Care is very clean and well appointed. The staff is very professional, but friendly and easy going. I?ve had laser hair removal done by several places. The prices at Raisa on laser hair removal are the most reasonable I?ve ever encountered. And they make the process absolutely painless, even on sensitive parts of the body. I didn?t think I needed my eyebrows waxed but when they were done and I got home, even my husband noticed the difference and he?s a tunnel-visioned engineer. I love the facials there. They?ve made my face look better and seemed to have actually improved the texture of my skin. Since going to Raisa for facials, I?ve actually seen lines on my face disappear. I like knowing that they will be very careful with my skin. Also, since I work during the week, I love their Saturday hours and the free parking is great. The nicest thing is that they make me feel special when I?m there, not like I?m just another paying client. They seem to recognize that I had a choice of many places to go to for these same services and they appreciate that I chose them.
A Hidden Gem – I had my first Raisa experience a few weeks ago and I was very impressed. I am very picky about my brows as they are a dominant feature on my face and have a naturally strong arch. Some aestheticians in the past have been overzealous waxers, wanting to strip my forehead bare, but Raisa knew better and kept them thick. Raisa shaped them into harder angles than I am used to without making me look angry, a look I have been trying to get aestheticians to achieve for years without success. My brows seemed very ? ?me.? I would definitely go back to see her again.
The spa also employs a hair stylist, Ruzanna, who I tried as well. Again, I am very particular about who touches my hair as it's curly and most stylist don't know how to cut it properly. I usually see my friend who is a celebrity stylist but I wanted to give Ruzanna a go. She analyzed my cut and actually fixed it a little, blending in the layers better than they were before. Then she gave me a blow-out, giving me volume and lift at the roots, and waves at the bottom (I have long hair). When she spun me around to look in the mirror at the final result, my jaw dropped. My hair had never looked so gorgeous! And the style stuck with me for about a week, looking just as fantastic as the first day. You MUST try Ruzanna! Call her at 323.497.1632 to make an appointment, her pricing is extremely reasonable.
Everyone at the salon is sooo sweet, it makes your time there even more enjoyable. Make this spa/salon is a must on your list of great LA spas.

You'll Never Go Anywhere Else – If you are new to waxing, this is where you want to go! Raisa and her staff are professionals and will make your experience as fast and comfortable as possible. I go there monthly for leg and bikini waxing and am always treated with such care. Before you know it, it's over!
